Whatever happened to Add Comment/Note in Excel?

Whatever happened to Add Comment/Note in Excel?   It's no longer available as an option when I right click a cell.  Seems to have started since the recent Windows upgrade.

Also tried the recommended "Review" recommended by HELP but not there either.

Even older comments now only have ability to delete them.

I'm using Office Home & Student 2019, version 2111 and do not use cloud/onedrive.


Many thanks!

@Wundr Old style comments are now called notes.

In MS365 there are two options in the right-click menu, New Comment and New Note. I understand that's no longer so in your case. Then check the Review ribbon. You should find it there.
